Celtic’s Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee that was to come up on Wednesday night has been postponed after huge snowfall across Scotland – and while the rest of the country put on wolly hats, the Bhoys supporters have been putting tinfoil ones on leaving Rangers fans in stitches.
Despite the Met Office issuing a red weather warning for the first time ever across central Scotland, some fans on Twitter claim the cancellation of the Scottish Premiership clash is the result of a conspiracy against the six times champions.
Ayr United v Sevco – snowing -GAME ON
Saint Johnson V Sevco -snowing -GAME ON
Celtic V Dundee – snowing – GAME OFF
clear proof that sevsnow and the SFA are strange bed fellas. If there not giving sevco a penalty theyre calling off a Celtic game to help them TRY close gap.

The SPFL confirmed the cancellation of all fixtures in Scotland on Wednesday night on their official Twitter account with the Scottish Goverment advising against any travel until 10am on Thursday.

Regardless of the unprecedented snow fall, Hoops fans think the match cancellation is down the Scottish FA wanting to give Rangers a helping hand – and their fans have had a field day with it.
With the red weather warning to remain in effect until Thursday morning and an amber to follow, it seems though the weather is a genuine reason for the postponement.
With eight or nine inches of snow having already fallen across the central belt on Wednesday and virtually all public transport cancelled across the country it seems unlikely that there’s a conspiracy against Brendan Rodgers’ side.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:
The cry was snow surrender ❄️ ❄️ ⛄️🇬🇧 #55

Now you are starting to realise just how high the Sevco/Masonic conspiracy goes. How can you possibly compete with a group of people who can control the weather across the entire UK in order to further the interests of their football club?
